The Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) has disbursed N1.123 trillion to the Federal, State and Local Government Councils for March 2024.


This was contained in a communique by FAAC at the end of its April 2024 meeting.


The N1.123 trillion distributed revenue was broken down as follows: Distributable statutory revenue, N311.233 billion; Distributable Value Added Tax (VAT) revenue, N511.879 billion; Electronic Money Transfer Levy (EMTL) revenue, N14.754 billion and Exchange Difference revenue, N285.525 billion


While the total distributable revenue was lower than February’s N1.192 trillion by N69 billion, there were some bright spots.


Gross revenue available from Value Added Tax (VAT) in March 2024 was N549.698 billion, a significant increase of N89.210 billion compared to February’s N460.488 billion. This suggests increased economic activity, particularly in sectors that generate VAT.


Distributable statutory revenue: Federal Government, N133.960 billion; State Governments, N67.946 billion; Local Government Councils, N52.384 billion; Derivation Revenue (13 percent of mineral revenue), N56.943 billion.


Electronic Money Transfer Levy (EMTL): Federal Government, N2.213 billion; State Governments, N7.377 billion; Local Government Councils, N5.164 billion


Exchange Difference revenue: Federal Government, N132.935 billion; State Governments: N67.426 billion; Local Government Councils, N51.983 billion and Derivation Revenue (13 percent of mineral revenue), N33.181 billion


The communique noted an increase in Import Duty, VAT, Gas Royalty, and Company Income Tax (CIT) for March 2024 compared to February. However, there were also decreases in Excise Duty, Oil Royalty, Petroleum Profit Tax (PPT), Electronic Money Transfer Levy (EMTL), and Customs and Excise Tariff (CET) Levies.


The communique also revealed that the balance in the Excess Crude Account (ECA) stood at $473,754.57 as of March 2024.


The FAAC disbursement report provides valuable insights into Nigeria’s revenue generation and allocation patterns. While overall collections dipped slightly in March compared to February, the increase in VAT revenue is a positive sign.


The detailed breakdown by revenue source and tier of government allows for a deeper understanding of how these resources are distributed.
